O Gaviao-carrapateiro (Milvago chimachima) e uma ave da ordem Ciconiiformes (antigamente Falconiformes), da familia dos falconideos, que ocorre da America Central ao norte do Uruguai e da Argentina e em todo o Brasil, onde e um dos gavioes mais conhecidos. A especie possui cerca de 40 cm de comprimento, dorso marrom-escuro, cabeca, pescoco e partes inferiores branco-amareladas, face nua e alaranjada, asas longas, com nitida mancha branca, e cauda longa. E associado a pecuaria, alimentando-se de carrapatos e bernes, alem de lagartas, cupins e outros itens alimentares. Tambem e conhecido pelos nomes de caracara-branco, caracarai, caracaratinga, carapinhe, chimango, gaviao-pinhe, papa-bicheira, pinhe, pinhem, chimango, chimango-branco e chimango-carrapateiro e chimango-do-campo.
Recebe o nome popular de carrapateiro por ser comumente observado alimentando-se de carrapatos ou bernes de bovinos e de equinos. Esta especie de gaviao, assim como Polyborus plancus, o carcara, e muito comum, inclusive em areas urbanas, sendo talvez a ave de rapina mais visivel nas cidades brasileiras, com excecao do urubu, por conta de sua abundancia (pode ser visto ate nas torres de iluminacao do Aterro do Flamengo, no Rio de Janeiro), do seu voo lento - que inclusive o torna alvo de ataques do bem-te-vi e outras aves - e das suas vocalizacoes frequentes. Quando em sobrevoo, emite um grito agudo que soa como "pinhe", semelhante ao canto do gaviao carijo (Buteo magnirostris). Alimentacao: artropodes, principalmente carrapatos, frutos e, mais raramente, cadaveres; saqueia ninhos de outras aves e captura pequenos vertebrados indefesos ou depauperados. Nidificacao: constroem grandes ninhos, de ramos secos, em palmeiras ou em outras arvores. Os ovos, de 5 a 7, sao redondos, pardo-amarelos com manchas pardo-vermelhas. A femea encarrega-se da incubacao e o macho fornece-lhe o alimento durante tal periodo. Nos Falconiformes, o tempo de incubacao e de 4 a 8 semanas; apos o nascimento dos filhotes o macho continua a alimentar a femea e esta, por sua vez , os jovens. Habitat: pastagens, campos com arvores esparsas, vizinhancas de cidades e margens de rodovias. Tamanho: 40,0 cm

The following text, in english, is from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:
The Yellow-headed Caracara, Milvago chimachima, is a bird of prey in the family Falconidae. It is found in tropical and subtropical South America and the southern portion of Central America. Unlike the Falco falcons in the same family, the caracaras are not fast-flying aerial hunters, but are rather sluggish and often scavengers.
The Yellow-headed Caracara is 41–46 cm (16–18 in) cm long and weighs 325 g (11.5 oz) on average. The female is larger than the male, weighing 310–360 g (11–13 oz), against his 280–330 g (9.9–12 oz). It is broad-winged and long-tailed, somewhat resembling a small Buteo. The adult has a buff head, with a black streak behind the eye, and buff underparts. The upperparts are brown with distinctive pale patches on the flight feathers of the wings, and the tail is barred cream and brown.
The sexes are similar, but the head and underparts of immature birds have dense brown mottling. The voice of this species is a characteristic screamed schreee.
This is a bird of savannah, swamps and forest edges. The Yellow-headed Caracara is a resident bird from Costa Rica south through Trinidad and Tobago to northern Argentina (the provinces of Misiones, Chaco, Formosa, Corrientes and Santa Fe). It is typically found from sea level to 1,800 m (5,900 ft), occasionally to 2,600 m (8,500 ft) ASL. In southern South America, it is replaced by a close relative, the Chimango Caracara (Milvago chimango), whose range overlaps with that of the Yellow-headed Caracara in southern Brazil, northern Argentina, Paraguay and Uruguay. A larger and stouter paleosubspecies, Milvago chimachima readei, occurred in Florida and possibly elsewhere during the Late Pleistocene, some tens of thousand years ago.[1] According to the Peregrine Fund database, the Yellow-headed Caracara is expanding its range into Nicaragua.[2]
The Yellow-headed Caracara is omnivorous, and will eat reptiles, amphibians and other small animals as well as carrion. Birds are rarely if ever taken, and this species will not elicit warning calls from mixed-species feeding flocks that cross its path even in open cerrado habitat .[3] It will also take ticks from cattle, and is locally called "tickbird". In addition, at least younger birds are fond of certain fruits, such as those of the Oil palm (Elaeis guineensis) and Pequi (Caryocar brasiliense).[4] It lays from five to seven brown-marked buff eggs in a stick nest in a tree.[5]
The Yellow-headed Caracara has benefited from forest clearing for cattle ranching. Its status in Trinidad has changed

Plaza de la Democracia, San Jose, Costa Rica

Plaza de la Democracia, San Jose, Costa Rica

I'm looking forward to Costa Rica. It's unfair to say I haven't enjoyed Panama as I've seen so very little of it. I'm sure if I'd have manged to get out to the Darien region I'd have seen another side.

My 6.30am start to Costa Rica starts ominously when the hotel tries to bill me again for the room. Once in the taxi the driver begins a slow rant about how Panama is not a true democracy as the (corrupt) government is never accountable for its actions. But if a man were to steal a chicken to feed his starving children he'd be thrown in jail. He repeats this analogy three times while I grunt in agreement from the back seat. It's far too early in the morning to be discussing Panamanian politics.

Again my travel agent had booked me into executive class but I've now stopped worrying about the money I handed over six months ago. The flight is going well and we're on our descent, when the plane takes a sharp turn and starts ascending rapidly. All my cabin mates are chatting away merrily. Has no one else noticed? Am I the only one slightly panicking? It's only when the captain clears his throat and announces that there was a slight 'problem' that they begin to look perturbed. By then, the plane has righted itself and we're on our descent.

Things are unfortunately not getting better. In San Jose my hotel has no record of my reservation and they're full so I'm forced to move to another hostel.

GAAA - Barbara Selesnick Square

"I have been a flight attendant for Continental Airlines for 23 years. It has been an interesting job that takes me to many different places. My favourite part of the day is talking to the passengers - I have met some wonderful people over the years. Early in my career, I developed one particular pastime that has given me so many wonderful moments. Whenever I see someone wearing a locket, I always inquire what treasures are inside the locket. Many show me pictures of children or grandchildren. One woman told me that the photo in her locket was of her son who lost his life in Vietnam War. My most treasured story was a woman who had a photo in her locket that was quite old and worn. It was the only surviving picture of her mother, who perished in a concentration camp. We talked about her memories of her mother.
"I know that when I approach passengers onboard to inquire about 'what is within,' their stories will always touch me deeply and become my memories as well. I believe that people wear lockets not only to keep their cherished loves ones close to their hearts, but also because they want to share memories and stories of those who have touched their 'heart strings'.
"I chose this heart cable for my square because it reminded me of intertwined lockets and the people I've met and shared moments with along the way."

I came across this a couple of months ago while searching my childhood photo albums for a particular picture. In a baby book on the "First Outings" page, my mother pinned this pair of wings from my first flight. As you can see the bottom reads "Future Flight Attendant" which is so funny since I just ended my nine year "career" as a flight attendant. How prophetic.

Hiker's luggage for a flight to Moab, Utah

Hiker's luggage for a flight to Moab, Utah

Determining how to pack my hiking gear for a flight to Moab was a challenge, as I like to take "everything except the kitchen sink." Somehow I managed. The biggest items were a large day pack and an ice axe, both of which were carried in the home-made cardboard box.

My luggage consisted of two standard suitcases (checked luggage), a rolling suitcase (carry-on), a day pack (carry-on), camera holster (carry-on), and a cardboard box (checked luggage). The box was originally the container in which our flat-panel TV was delivered. It was about three times this height; I lowered its sides so it would observe the size rules of the airline. The triple-wall corrugation was tough stuff---I used it the second time I flew to Utah and it held up very well.

This was shot in the Apache Motel in Moab. The motel's motto is "Where John Wayne stayed." The Apache Motel has hosted movie crews and stars over the years (other facilities in Moab have done so too). This is my closest connection to The Duke.

Warsaw Frederic Chopin Airport (Polish: Port Lotniczy im. Fryderyka Chopina) (IATA: WAW, ICAO: EPWA) is an international airport located in the Okecie district of Warsaw, Poland. Formerly Okecie International Airport, it is named after the famous Polish composer and former Warsaw resident, Frederic Chopin. It is Poland's busiest airport, handling just under 50% of the country's air passenger traffic.[1]

The former name, lotnisko Okecie (Okecie airport), remains in common use, including air traffic and aerodrome references.

Warsaw Airport handles approximately 100 scheduled flights daily and an ever rising number of charters. London, Frankfurt, Paris and Amsterdam are the busiest international connections, while Krakow, Wroclaw and Gdansk are the most popular domestic ones.[3]

Leo Loudenslager built the Laser 200 for competition aerobatics and the goal of winning a world aerobatic title. Ultimately, Loudenslager and his Laser were so successful that he won an unprecedented seven U.S. National Aerobatic Champion titles, a record that still stands, and the 1980 World Champion title. Loudenslager's legacy is evident in the design characteristics and performance of current aerobatic aircraft, powerful and agile monoplanes, and in the tumbling and twisting but precise routines flown by current champions and airshow pilots.

Loudenslager learned to fly in 1962 when he was a mechanic in the U.S. Air Force and his flying skills immediately impressed his instructors. He became a certified flight instructor and co-operated a fixed base operation at Vacaville Aiport in California before joining American Airlines as a pilot. When Leo attended the 1964 Reno Air Races, he was so impressed by the flights of legends Duane Cole in his clipped-wing Taylorcraft and Bob Hoover in his North American P-51 Mustang that he decided to become an aerobatic competitor.

In the late 1960s, Loudenslager decided to build an aerobatic airplane but decided against one like the popular, though not yet dominant Pitts Special, the deHavilland Chipmunk, or the Czech Zlin. Instead he ordered plans for a sleek new design by Clayton Stephens, the Stephens Akro. The Akro was a midwing monoplane inspired by European aerobatic aircraft. Stephens and George Ritchie designed the aircraft for Ritchie's wife Margaret, an aerobatic competitor, and Ed Allenbaugh refined and engineered the design. Loudenslager bought plans and began work on the fuselage and tail while Stephens built the wings. Margaret Ritchie was killed in her Akro, but the cause was determined not to be design-related so Loudenslager continued his work.

His Akro first flew in April 1971, but he continued to modify the aircraft, still searching for perfection, in the forms of better rates of climb and roll and overall strength of the airplane. He remodeled it continuously and, in 1975, finally ended by cutting the aircraft in half and building an entirely new aircraft from the cockpit forward. Changes included modified airfoil and wing, and several forward fuselages, tails, instrument panels, propellers, spinners, and turtledecks. Only about 10 percent of the original Stephens Akro remained, specifically the tail-cone behind the pilot running to the tail section. The aircraft's data plate still labels the aircraft as a Stephens Akro, but this was because, as a matter of expediency, Loudenslager never requested a new one bearing the Laser designation. Only six months passed from the time when he embarked on the major rebuild until the 1975 national championship, and he did not have time for paperwork. He also wanted to keep the registration number N10LL.

When the Laser 200, resplendent in blue and yellow, emerged, it was lighter, stronger, and more powerful, with a 200 hp engine. These modifications allowed Loudenslager to perform more difficult and sharper maneuvers with seemingly endless rolls throughout the sequence. Loudenslager and the Laser could fly at more than 230 mph and endure gravity forces up to 9 Gs. Mattituck Engines modified the Lycoming engine to achieve maximum performance under these stressful conditions. The aircraft is made of steel tubes with fabric-covered fuselage and tail section. The single-piece wing consists of a spruce spar reinforced with birch plywood caps on bottom and top, to prevent the cracking of the spar near the wing root, as happened in the Akro. The plywood and spruce ribs are covered in 1/8th inch mahogany skin.

In 1971, Loudenlagser competed in his first contest at the second level of competition and then immediately proceeded to the highest level, unlimited. He flew at the U.S. nationals and amazingly came in eighth in the men's division. He won his first U.S. National Championship title in 1975 and repeated in '76, '77, and '78, and then again in '80, '81, and '82. Aerobatic champion and judge Clint McHenry once said he had only seen two perfect aerobatic routines, and both were flown by Loudenslager. Loudenslager retired from competition flight in 1983 but continued to fly at airshows around the country until his death (not flight related) in 1997. In 1983, the Laser was painted in the brilliant red Bud Light scheme to reflect its sponsorship.

The Laser 200 heavily influenced the next generation of aerobatic aircraft, including the Extra, which dominated competition throughout the 1990s. Monoplanes have less drag, full-length ailerons for crisp maneuvers, and, for the judges, better presentation in the sky than biplanes. The monoplane design offers a stronger frame so that more powerful engines can be attached to provide power for high power but precise maneuvers.

N10LL is one of about five or six Laser aircraft, and others, with significant modifications, have been built from Laser plans. Carolyn and Kelly

Zurakowski was born to Polish parents in 1909 in Ryzawka, which had been a city of the Russian Empire since 1864 when the Russians abolished the Congress Kingdom of Poland. In 1921, following the Polish-Soviet War, the Treaty of Riga established the frontier between Soviet Russia and the Second Polish Republic. The new border placed Ryzawka in Soviet territory and the Zurakowski family left their home and escaped into the newly established Polish Republic.
Zurakowski was educated in Lublin and while at high school, he learned to fly gliders. In 1934, Zurakowski joined the Polish Air Force and entered the Polish Air Force Officers' School. After learning to fly powered aircraft in 1935, and graduating as a Sub-Lieutenant, he went on to serve as a fighter pilot posted to 161 Fighter Squadron in Lwow, and later, in 1939, as a flying instructor at Deblin.
Second World War
In September 1939, "Black September", Zurakowski had his combat debut in an outmoded PZL P.7 trainer against a flight of seven German Dornier 17s attacking Deblin on 2 September. He managed to damage a Do 17 but was forced to break off combat when his guns jammed.
Following the defeat of Poland, Zurakowski made his way to England via Rumania and France. Like many of his compatriots, he was smuggled out of the war zone with false documents and a new identity as a forester. Thousands of the Polish Air Force pilots who had made their way to France fought against Luftwaffe forces in the Battle of France. Zurakowski was originally posted to a fighter unit in France before he was selected to train as a bomber pilot in England. Once he arrived in England, the RAF changed its mind and sent him and the first group of Poles to fighter squadrons which were rapidly being deployed in anticipation of an attack on Britain in 1940.
Zurakowski was first posted as a Pilot Officer to 152 Squadron before joining No 234 Squadron initially stationed at RAF St Eval, Cornwall, a town named after the patron saint of flight testing. The squadron was moved forward to RAF Middle Wallop on 13 August 1940. He flew the Spitfire Mk. 1 against the Luftwaffe shooting down a Messerschmitt Bf-110 over the Isle of Wight on 15 August 1940. After being shot down nine days later, he returned to duty, shooting down two Bf-109Es on the 12th and 13th day after that. Near the conclusion of the Battle of Britain, he scored a "probable" over a Bf-110C on 29 September 1940. Following the decimation of 234 Squadron and its transfer to the north, Zurakowski asked for a transfer to No. 609 Squadron RAF, a Spitfire unit still in the front lines. From there, he was reposted as a flight instructor to a succession of Flight Training Units where he passed on his knowledge of combat flying to a new group of fighter pilots.
In 1942, now Flying Officer Zurakowski flew again with his countrymen on Spitfire IIs in No 315 Squadron rising to the post of Squadron Leader of No 316 Polish Fighter Squadron and Deputy Wing leader of Polish No 1 Fighter Wing stationed at RAF Northolt, often escorting USAAF bombers on daylight bombing raids. Zurakowski scored a probable over a Me-109G on 17 May 1943 while acting as the Wing Gunnery Officer. He was awarded the Virtuti Militari, the Polish equivalent of the Victoria Cross in 1943.[1] Other awards included the Polish Cross of Valor (Krzyz Walecznych) and Bar (1941) and Second Bar (1943).
After the war, Poland's Soviet-imposed communist government exiled all of the Polish fighter pilots who had flown with the RAF as part of a ploy to downplay Polish patriotism.[2] As a result, S/L Zurakowski, among many other Polish war heroes, chose to stay in Britain. In 1944, he was posted to the Empire Test Pilots' School, graduating from No. 2 Course on 5 January 1945. From 1945 to 1947 Zurakowski worked as a test pilot with "C" Squadron of the Aeroplane and Armament Experimental Establishment (A&AEE) at RAF Boscombe Down, testing naval aircraft for the Air Ministry.[1] Never having landed an aircraft on a carrier before, he practised landing on a deck painted on a runway at Naval Air Station East Haven. Following a brief training period, he proceeded to land the Supermarine Seafire, a navalised Spitfire, on the deck of HMS Ravager without incident.
While still at Boscombe Down, Zurakowski also flew, among over 30 different types, the Vampire, the de Havilland Hornet and the Gloster Meteor never letting pass, "an opportunity to give the staff a display that included single engine aerobatics." Acknowledged as one of the best aerobatic pilots in the UK, he gave a spectacular display at the Farnborough Airshow in June 1946, with the Martin-Baker MB 5, a piston-engined fighter designed too late to enter production.

Flight Instructor Flight Maneuvers and Practical Test Prep

Flight Instructor Flight Maneuvers and Practical Test Prep is designed to SIMPLIFY and FACILITATE your flight instructor training in a single-engine land airplane. This book teaches you how to instruct each flight maneuver or other subject area (such as preflight preparation) prior to your flight lesson. Thus, you will be thoroughly prepared to spend more quality time in the airplane. Additionally, this book serves as an excellent review prior to your FAA practical (flight) test.
We carefully designed Flight Instructor Flight Maneuvers and Practical Test Prep to make it easy for you to learn and understand. For example 1.
We outline and illustrate each flight maneuver you will perform during your flight training. You will know what to expect and what to do before your instructor demonstrates how to instruct the maneuver. You will learn faster because you will understand what to do. 2.
We have included discussion of the FAA's list of common errors made during each flight maneuver. This will help you learn from others' mistakes. 3.
Each FAA practical test task is explained in terms of what your FAA-designated examiner, or FAA inspector, may expect you to interpret or demonstrate. You will be thoroughly prepared to complete your practical test confidently and successfully. 4.
Finally, we help you focus on gaining practical test standard proficiency as quickly as possible to prepare you for your FAA practical (flight) test.
Additionally, this book contains the FAA Flight Instructor (single-engine land airplane) Practical Test Standards reprinted verbatim.

the shops surrounding
the london underground station
quickly gave way to rows of houses,
each with heavily painted,
wooden doors.
in front of almost each one
was a small boxwood hedge
or an iron fence, and a gate.
the sound of Makzik's footsteps
echoed off the damp stone walls
and walkways.
as he walked along
the perimeter of the park,
he could see cherry blossoms,
shimmering in the light of a full moon.
it was early spring.
a chilly fog
embraced the city
and he could smell
the coal smoke
in the air.
it reminded him
of his home
in western pennsylvania.

a stone bridge
crossed over two sets
of railroad tracks.
the young captain
stopped at the top
of the gentle arch
and looked down
to the tracks below.
the green signal light
reflected up off the wet rails
and he saw the white engine light
of an oncoming train.
he stood with his arms crossed,
leaning against the stone wall,
looking down at the train
as it came hurtling down the tracks
just beneath him.
he could feel the vibration
in his spine
and then he was enveloped
by a huge cloud of steam
from the locomotive.

he had been over that mission
a thousand times before.
he had it all figured out in his head
that morning before they took off.
the flak guns
protecting the u-boat pens
off the coast had to have suffered
some wear and tear
in those steel gears
~ making for inaccuracy.
they would come in high
from the southwest,
making a series
of small course corrections,
by degrees,
each to the starboard side,
and then make a big sweep
back to the port side,
through the clouds,
in a shallow dive
toward the target,
hoping that it would take
some time for the flak guns
to catch up to them.

they leveled out at a low altitude
and he turned the aircraft
over to the bombardier.
he could see the flak bursts
high and to the starboard side.

“put your flak jackets and helmets on,”
he ordered over the intercom.
“it’s not clouding up to rain, gentlemen.”

for nine agonizing minutes,
the bombardier was flying the aircraft
and all of the aircraft flying behind them
were waiting for him to locate the target.
the flak bursts grew steadily closer.
and soon, they were in the thick of it.
not a word was spoken.
the aircraft would shudder
from time to time
from the concussion
of a flak burst
and you could smell the cordite in the air.
chunks of jagged shrapnel
blew right through the fuselage.
the bomb bay doors were open.
everything on the whole gaddamned aircraft
was shaking.

there was a loud bang
and Makzik felt something hit his right shoulder.
the force spun him around in his seat,
wrenching his back.
with an eerie sucking sound,
the wind rushed in through
a hole in the windscreen.
pain seared his brain
and for a moment
he thought he was going to black out.
he felt a warm trickle of blood
going down his sleeve
and into his glove.
he looked down at his right shoulder
and saw a still-smoldering
steel splinter sticking out of flight jacket.
it was so fucking hot
that it had cauterized the wound.

the co-pilot,
reached over to pull it out.

“no, leave it in there!” Maklik yelled.

over the intercom,
he heard the bombardier say
that he had acquired the target.

“bombs away!”

freed from the weight of the bombs,
the aircraft buoyed up.
all of the following aircraft
dropped their bomb loads as well.
down below,
in rapid succession,
there were many loud explosions,
followed by a massive explosion
which released a hellish fireball.
Kosinski closed the bomb bay doors.

“must have hit a fuel dump,” said Kosinski.

“you got it?” Makzik asked.

“got it!” yelled Kosinski.

“let’s get the hell out of here!”
he said, as he took the controls.

Makzik leaned back in his seat,
his right arm hanging limp.

they were climbing
up through the heavy cloud cover
and straight into the sun,
trying to get back out over the channel.
Makzik raised his good arm
and used his hand to shade his eyes.
he caught a brief glimpse
of what he thought was
the silhouette of a ME-109,
attacking head on.
before he could call out the fighter,
20mm cannon shells
ripped across the nose
and starboard wing of the aircraft.
one shell fragmented upon impact,
shattering the windscreen.
Kosinski’s head snapped back violently
and Maklik could hear Kosinski’s helmet
hit the back of the cockpit.
Kosinski slumped forward over the yoke,
half his head blown away.
the inside of the cockpit
was full of smoke.
dark red blood
was splattered all over the windows.
like a punch-drunk prize fighter,
the aircraft staggered
and began losing altitude.

“mother of god!”

with his left arm,
Makzik reached across to Kosinski
and gently pulled him back off the yoke.
he looked out over the wing
and saw that the inside engine
was on fire

from the outside engine.

Air Portugal - outerwear

Air Portugal - outerwear

From the Air Portugal website:

"Designed by Manuel Alves and Jose Manuel Goncalves, Portuguese stylists of international prestige, this new uniform will be worn by professionals in the Company's front line from 2007 onwards: Flight personnel, TAP airport personnel, sales’ outlet staff and external service staff. They will be portraying TAP’s new image as they are in contact with and attend customers on a daily basis.

"The new uniforms come about as part of all the work carried out in recent years to transform TAP into a stronger, more modern and competitive company, reflecting the spirit of change, renovation and rejuvenation of the new TAP company.
With a view to renovating Company uniforms, a design creativity competition was launched. TAP invited Portuguese designers present at recent editions of Moda Lisboa and Portugal Fashion to take part and in all 29 stylists manifested their interest.

"It is 37 years since Company uniforms were last designed by national stylists.
By opting this time for Portuguese stylists, TAP has demonstrated its confidence in the high quality and contemporary appeal of current Portuguese fashion, thus continuing in the direction it has been pursuing in recent years opting for Portuguese products and brands of recognized quality and prestige."

New Uniforms – modern, beautiful, comfortable and functional

"While presenting the new uniforms, Fernando Pinto, Company Delegate Chairman stresses 'We continue to work to turn TAP into the best company to travel with and invest in, however we never lose sight of the fact that it should also be the best to work for. Because of this, in addition to the new uniforms being more modern and attractive, a determining factor was the level of comfort and functionality afforded to those wearing them.'

"With the introduction of these uniforms, TAP reinforces its affirmation of “Portuguese-ness”, a concept that it has developed in a variety of forms and which allows the Company to present today to the entire world what Portugal best has to offer. This ranges from the TAP new livery, designed by a national company, to traditional Portuguese hospitality, including among other aspects our gastronomy and wines.
TAP uniformed personnel constitute a heterogenic group encompassing four distinct professional categories: Flight Personnel (technical and commercial) and Land Personnel (outlets, airports and external services). The two designers Manual Alves & Jose Manuel Goncalves characterized the new uniform as “very fashionable” in terms of appearance and flexibility. They point out that the idea was that "the concept to be developed (should) provoke creativeness. That is, not portray the idea of a uniform but of flexible working clothes that allow each person to have their own image but not one divorced from the original concept itself.”

Victoria, BC

Victoria, BC

The Russian tall ship Pallada, owned by the Far Eastern State Technical Fishing University, dropped anchored at Canada’s Port of Victoria on Friday, ITAR-TASS reports.

On July 1, the ship set out on an expedition dedicated to the 270th anniversary of the discovery of Russian America by Russian sailors and to the 50th anniversary of Yuri Gagarin’s first space flight. The Pallada has already called at Alaska’s ports of Kodiak and Sitka and now has reached a third port on its route along North American lands that Russian seafarers discovered and developed in the middle of the 17th century.

Victoria is the capital of British Columbia, Canada, and is located on the southern tip of Vancouver Island off Canada's Pacific coast. The city has a population of about 345,000 and since May 25, 1990 it has been a sister city of Russia’s Far Eastern Khabarovsk.

The local authorities say they will accord a hearty welcome. The Pallada’s crew and cadets will visit a number of museums in the city, and meet with members of the Victoria-Khabarovsk friendship association, the Whitehall Spirit sailing club, and other professional associations of sailors.

The Pallada will leave Victoria on August 7 or 8 to further head for the ports of San Francisco and Los Angeles, and then for Honolulu, on the Hawaiian Islands, and for Japan.

The Pallada sailing ship, built in 1989 in Poland’s Gdansk, is listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as the fastest sailing ship. It can reach a speed of more than 18 knots. Now the ship is used to train cadets and to take part in international regattas and festivals. Over the twenty years of its history, the sailing ship has made 109 voyages, called at 101 ports in 35 countries and trained more than 12,000 cadets from all over Russia.

United 83 at Los Angeles

United 83 at Los Angeles

I have just arrived from Washington Dulles on board this aircraft, having enjoyed some great views of the American West on the way.

Flight 83 will continue to Honolulu, though with a change of aircraft; the Airbus fleet at United does not operate overwater services.

United is notorious for using a shared flight number between two different flights that can be lumped as "continuous," even when using different equipment; too many passengers get a rude surprise, having expected a same-plane one-stop direct flight. And Mileage Plus members, if taking both legs of the "same" flight, nevertheless get credited for one through flight rather than two separate segments, with mileage calculated for the Great Circle distance between origin and destination without accounting for the intermediate stop.

This aircraft, built in 2002, is one of the youngest in the United fleet, arriving at a time when the airline was reeling from the dot-com bust at its San Francisco hub, decreased travel demand post 9/11, and a bad aftertaste from labor unrests of 2000 and 2001. United declared bankruptcy later that year, and no more new aircraft arrived after 2002; outstanding A320 orders were indefinitely deferred. No new orders were placed either until late 2009. An airline that had once prided itself on state-of-the-art aircraft, and even launched countless brand-new models, now runs one of the most outdated fleets in the business. Only the 2010 merger with Continental Airlines, and the delivery of some Boeing 737-800s previously ordered by Continental, allowed United to have factory-new aircraft in its fleet again without having to wait until 2016.

  • Free fall is any motion of a body where gravity is the only or dominant force acting upon it, at least initially. Since this definition does not specify velocity, it also applies to objects initially moving upward.

  • Free flight is a developing air traffic control method that uses no centralized control (e.g. air traffic controllers). Instead, parts of airspace are reserved dynamically and automatically in a distributed way using computer communication to ensure the required separation between aircraft.

Atlas of the World: Seventeenth Edition

Atlas of the World: Seventeenth Edition

Product Description
The only world atlas updated annually, guaranteeing that users will find the most current geographic information, Oxford's Atlas of the World is the most authoritative atlas on the market. Full of crisp, clear cartography of urban areas and virtually uninhabited landscapes around the globe, the Atlas is filled with maps of cities and regions at carefully selected scales that give a striking view of the Earth's surface. Opening with world statistics and a colorful, instructive 48-page Introduction to World Geography--beautifully illustrated with tables and graphs--this acclaimed resource provides details on numerous topics of geographic significance, such as climate change, biodiversity, energy, and landforms.

The popular satellite image section has been refreshed with stunning new images of Denver (clearly showing how the natural barrier of the Rockies affects population spread), Kabul (which shows in vivid detail how that city is encircled by mountains), and Port-au-Prince, Haiti. All census information and country descriptions have been updated to reflect the latest developments around the world. Completely new to this edition is a section titled "Will the World Run Out of Food?," which discusses world food distribution and how this has changed rapidly in recent years, based on data collected by Rothamsted Research, the oldest research station in the world. A new section on world shipping piracy explores the rise in piracy, especially off the coast of Somalia, and the effects on the World Food Programme. Maps throughout have been updated to include such new features as the World Financial Center (the world's third tallest building) in Shanghai, new international airports in India and South Africa, administrative changes in Iceland, Bulgaria, and elsewhere, new national parks in Denmark, and many more.

Providing the finest global coverage available, the Atlas of the World is not only the best-selling volume of its size and price, but also the benchmark by which all other atlases are measured.

Gulf of Aden: In peril on the sea
Every year thousands of people in the Horn of Africa – mainly Somalis and Ethiopians – leave their homes out of fear or pure despair, in search of safety or a better life. They make their way over dangerous Somali roads to Bossaso in the northern semi-autonomous region of Puntland. In this lawless area, smuggler networks have free reign and innocent and desperate civilians pay up to US$150 to make the perilous trip across the Gulf of Aden.

Some stay weeks on end in safe houses or temporary homes in Bossaso before they can depart. A sudden call and a departure in the middle of the night, crammed in small unstable boats. At sea, anything can happen to them – they are at the whim of smugglers. Some people get beaten, stabbed, killed and thrown overboard. Others drown before arriving on the beaches of Yemen, which have become the burial ground for hundreds who many of those who died en route.

The National Geographic Student Atlas of the World is much more than maps. Weblink icons direct you to Internet sites to expand your knowledge and keep statistics up to date. The third edition of the award-winning National Geographic Student Atlas of the World is an invaluable resource and a must-have reference tool for libraries and homes everywhere.
